Foraging is one of my favourite parts of outdoor life. The forests, hedgerows, meadows and verges in spring and early summer are teeming with edible treats. One of my favourites is wood sorrel. Wood sorrel is a small, leafy green which, when picked early in the season, tastes like green apple skin. It’s tart but delicious and refreshing on a hot day. It can be found all over the UK, mostly in wooden areas and is great in salads. I last had some straight out the ground in the Lake District after a swim in Derwent Water.
